The ETERNUS DX8900 S4 delivers performance of up to about 10 million IOPS, 1.3 times that of conventional models, in applications connected to open systems. This is due to the use of high performance CPUs in its storage controllers and memory capacity about 3 times conventional models. In addition, cache response has been improved by installing NVMe SSDs capable of high response speeds as a secondary cache.
In applications connected to open systems, the ETERNUS DX8900 S4 reduces data storage capacity usage by about 50% while limiting the impact on performance by incorporating a new dedicated chip to handle data compression processing in real time.
Both new models can be connected to Fujitsu's GS21 series of mainframes, which the company plans to continue to offer through 2030 and beyond. The new models therefor support the ICT infrastructure of core systems in the mission-critical field, where high reliability is needed. The ETERNUS DX8100 S4 is also available in an all-in-one format, incorporated into the storage unit within GS21 models, delivering a compact server structure that reduces installation space by up to 40% compared to conventional models.
The ETERNUS DX8100 S4 is only available in Japan. The ETERNUS DX8900 S4 is available worldwide. Both models are shipping from January 18, 2019.
